Newsreader Natasha Kaplinsky is expecting a second baby. The secret was leaked last week and spokespeople have since confirmed the story. She gave birth to her first child, Arlo, a year ago in September.

A video of a local yob receiving his come-uppance at the hands of a man he was trying to intimidate has become one of the most popular stories of the week. Local 'hard nut' Les Andrews started shouting and threatening Jason Smith on his doorstep. After remaining calm for some time, Smith, who is a Gulf War veteran and martial arts expert, floored the thug with one punch, humiliating Andrews in front of a large crowd of watchers. Andrews was later arrested.
